I’m 28 and, although, I still feel young, I can sense my body changing. I can’t help but feel sad about it, if I’m being honest. I never thought I’d feel the changes so quickly, but I am. Particularly in my skin.Read More
J and I hosted the inaugural “Friendsgiving” party with our close friends this past weekend. Each gal was entrusted with bringing a crucial dish to complete our feast. Being the hosts of the gathering, I offered to take on the task of the turkey, stuffing and a side dish.Read More
It was about time I wrote a post about one of my greatest passions: food. Just kidding… I do that enough already. However, I don’t want to discuss food in general, but other people’s food quirky preferences, or lack there of.Read More
What a weekend! It was filled with family, friends and food. What's better than that? Not much, in my book. On Friday night J and I went out to eat with my parents whom we haven't seen in a few weeks. On Saturday night I made a new lasagna recipe (coming soon in another post) that is definitely worth sharing, and on Sunday morning our close friends came over for a World Cup watch party.Read More
I haven't written a post since March. March! Holy Mariah I'm way behind. I hate that I've let my blog fall to the wayside as my twin sis and I continue to build and grow our real estate business together. (BTW- we've moved brokerages and are now at a family-owned brokerage called Phillips & Associates Realty. We love it so far!)Read More
Looking at my Netflix account under "Recommended for You", one would think I speak 4 different languages. I don't know what it is lately, but I've been hooked on international films and shows. Although sometimes tiresome and annoying to read subtitles, I get over the feeling quickly thanks to the attractive storylines, beautiful locations, and interesting cultures.Read More
Y'all know I enjoy cooking. It never used to be one of my favorite things to do, but the older I get (and the second I moved out on my own), I learned I need to have some basic skills in order for myself and my waistline to survive adulthood.Read More
It's hard to shop for boys, I'm not going to lie. Especially when your guy is a typical guy- he doesn't necessarily enjoy getting new clothes or grooming products. His hobbies are cars and electronics.Read More
I don't go to the grocery store that often. Not because I don't enjoy going. I actually really do! I love browsing the aisles for new foods to try, or getting ingredients for meals I've planned out for the week.Read More
J purchased a cooking class from Sur La Table for me for Christmas, and Saturday night we got to enjoy it together! I had gifted my mom a class we did together a few years ago and we had a blast, so I was very excited that J and I could experience one together.Read More
Did you know that the most common new year's resolution has to do with getting in shape, according to a Nielsen survey? Honestly, I used to be one of those people who vowed every January 1st to go on a diet.Read More
Here are some I've found around the web recently that I think you'd like.
1. Here's what a $29,000 Gucci dress looks like. Would you wear it?
2. NatGeo Travel released their "Best of the World" list for 2018 and my hometown made the list!

4. 7 books we lost to history that could've changed the world.
5. This map shows WiFi passwords for airports around the world. Never pay to log on while traveling again!
6. Get motivated and stay motivated by doing these things.
We all that one friend (or 5) who are completely obsessed with animals, more specifically, their own animals. Luckily, I've surrounded myself with some amazing women who adore their furry pets. Again, luckily, most of them are dog people... My two sisters are the only anomalies...Read More
I, unfortunately, do not have a strong DIY gene. I can make simple things, and enjoy the occasional home project or two, but the majority of the "visual creativity" belongs to my sisters and mom.Read More
I don't know what it is, but for some reason I have the hardest time finding gifts for friends and family. I feel like once the holidays roll around, I can't seem to find anything they'd like for within the budget we allotted for each other. That's why I rely heavily on "gift guides". It helps kick-start my brainstorm.Read More
